I first got connected to Christine & Steve through one of my sweet brides Betsy! 🙂 I always love when I get to photograph friends of past and current clients, it’s so much fun! And this was no exception! Christine & Steve’s engagement session was a blast! These two are so sweet and totally up for anything. The super cool Asbury Park scene was the perfect location for their engagement photos!
Christine and Steve have such a great story! I’ll let Christine tell it in her own words. 😉 She told me “My fiance’s name is Steve and we’ve known each other since our junior year Ramapo College. The first time we actually met was at a train station near campus where I was on the way into the city with some friends. He knew my friend’s roommate, which is how we struck up a conversation. A few months later we saw each other again at the same friend’s birthday party. We spent a lot of the night talking and I could tell there was definitely some kind of connection. Although a good part of our talking revolved around me teasing him and pretending to get mad that he had never read the Harry Potter series. (my absolute favorite and he has since read all the books!) Unfortunately the semester ended a few weeks later and we hadn’t run into each other again since. I was an art major and he was studying biology so our paths didn’t really cross. Fast forward to the very start of senior year, I was working at an event for the incoming freshman class. Steve happened to be at the booth next to mine so when we saw each other it was like picking up where we last left off. After a few more hang outs with our friends we finally had our first date. What followed after graduating was three years of long distance while Steve was at medical school in South Jersey and I was working in New York. It definitely wasn’t easy to be far apart but we made the best of our weekends together and planned as many fun things as we could. Then in 2017 we officially moved in together in Jersey City.”
Seriously…how sweet are these two!? Congratulations on your engagement Christine & Steve! And thank you so much for having me document this incredibly special season of your lives! You guys are amazing! Happy wedding planning!! xoxo
